The Dangers of Waist Training

Corsets also known as waist trainers have been around for ages but recently the craze for a flat tummy and an hourglass figure has fueled the corset sale. Several celebrities have contributed to the return of the waist trainers including the Kardashian family who are always posting photos in them. Our very own socialites are also using waist trainers and Vera Sidika claims to be selling them as indicated on her Instagram page.

To reduce your waist size from wearing a corset it is necessary it’s worn on a regular basis. The results are everything to write home about, a temporary reduced waist, a shape, an upright posture etc. But no one really says what are the disadvantages of excessive wearing of the corset.

1. Breathing problems
Wearing your corset too light constricts your diaphragm hence affecting your breathing. The trick is to wear the waist trainer to a comfortable level where you can breathe normally.

2. Bone reshaping
Buying the wrong corset and wearing it the wrong way can be costly as it may reshape your bones. The trick is finding a certified waist trainer and wearing it for a lesser time. Avoid using it when sleeping or while eating.

3. Muscles become weak
Wearing a corset for too long and too tight may weaken your muscles causing them to waste away due to the degeneration of cells.
